Roger Waters has released a new version of a Pink Floyd classic. The track, “Comfortably Numb 2022,” was recorded during the rocker’s This Is Not A Drill North American tour and is now available on streaming services.
“During Lockdown I made a demo of a new version of ‘Comfortably Numb‘ as an opener for our new show This Is Not A Drill,” Roger shares. “I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro chord sequence, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful female vocal solo from Shanay Johnson, one of our new singers.”
The original “Comfortably Numb” was released in 1980 and appeared on Pink Floyd’s classic album The Wall.
